Galilean transformation from velocity composition?

  1. Jul 6, 2010 #1
    Hi.

    Is there a quick way of deriving the Galilean transformations from the Galilean composition formula for velocities?

    Cheers.

    You mean, the other way around?

    I have to think about this, but if you want to know more about this maybe Levy-Leblond's analysis of the Galilei group helps :)
